Coins and their metal (to bring back this old topic), one clear exception: the Kennedy 1/2 dollar.

It is an unsung hero as it had a greater percentage of silver in the mix. The '64s for sure (something like 90% silver). After, they still had 40% or something of the sort. Heck, makes 'em worth $1.50 USD!!
(for the record, I think my comic book collection is going at about the same rate). Hmmm...let's see what my 8 copies of Spawn #1 are selling for nowadays.

it could do 45's. I have no idea if there was a way to do 78's. forget the brand though

Yup, and in North America, this sort of "spirit duplicator" was known as a Ditto Machine! Ditto paper and the machine used to make the copies coexisted with the mimeograph but was invented later. It was the immediate precursor to the photocopy machine! The buzz came from the mineral spirits that were used to make the copies.

it was solvent based, the process to ink the papers. probably something like acetone or rubbing alcohol ,like a quick huff on an old fashioned glue bottle ,

There is only one right answer. Ink doesn't play into it. Perhaps in a mimeograph or a carbon copy but neither directly gave you a buzz. Only one sort of duplication did it.

My question? Name it!

Not sure what you are looking for. The smell of the ink, the chemicals, alchol ?

[guidogodoy] Tuesday, February 25, 2014 10:56:12 AM 
Mimeograph - nope. Close, but no cigar.

Had you gotten the answer, you would have won the grand prize: a real turntable! LOL! Of course, you'd have to pay s/h and any duty costs but the penny would have been included.

Record player you describe sounds like one my sister and I had. It was a box. Take the cover off to expose the arm / turntable. Played '45s natively but could do a '78 as well. HA!

I think mine is still at my mom's house. Probably worth a Canadian penny to a collector.

I doubt that you will ever get more than a penny.  pre 1993 ( think) are pure copper, so those are worth selling for the metal value, currently 1.6 cents worth.  the once since are not worth much since they are an alloy.  the US coins have been alloy or layered depending on the denomination for a long time, so never worth anything for the metal

I have been shot down with a canadian coin in the states before, that I got in change there.  ffs.

 MIMIOGRAPH INK?

we had a record player.  arm was round, head was small, couldnt get place to tape a penny on.  

by the time I hit age of wanting a buzz zerox had killed that.

That is just it: WHY could you catch a buzz? Your answer below deducts points. It had nothing to do with ink, per se. What was it?

Full credit for the penny on the arm of the turntable. Hey, HB. No more 1 cent pieces? Should I hold on to my old maple leaf ones? I was in a store the other day when a lady was shut down for trying to pass of a Canadian quarter. WTF?!? The world is falling apart.

The wet ink was not as good as locker room rush

[METALMANJP] Monday, February 24, 2014 11:47:51 AM 

To catch a BUZZ ! And I used the penny before.

[guidogodoy] Monday, February 24, 2014 9:13:35 AM 
You remember "HEARING??" Never actually did it?! You poor creature. couldn't afford a turntable, eh? lol Certainly couldn't have much to do with age.

I'll let the wet paper answer go for a bit to see if anyone can answer it. Very common, though. Teachers hand out some activity and the paper is a little wet so the first thing to do is take a huge sniff. Why?

BS., old fart. How did you know that a penny was involved?

LOL! Yes, you are hereby deemed an old fart!

Now why did kids smell papers (such as in F.B's Days off??) when they were wet and handed out to students?
